Chin Hin Sour Soup….delhi haat visit

Chin Hin Sour Soup

When I drew off curtains, sun greeted me with warm smile.  In winters, a morning can’t be better than this.  I gear up to make cauliflower fritters with gooseberry pesto or chutney(gobhi pakora), our routine Sunday breakfast. And after breakfast I quickly prepare the Kadhi with the remaining batter for lunch, so that I can ask my husband to take us somewhere.  Now the final decision was left on him, whether he will or he won’t?  He agreed and we decided to visit Delhi Haat.  My son was not so happy but for my sake he too agreed.

So here is a peek into our visit to Delhi Haat.

There as usual my husband occupied one place, and start doing his favourite pastime  ordering and watching people and we, went to shop, which we love most. Delhi Haat

There, as usual we enjoyed momos and dosa.

After spending 2 to 3 hours over there, we came back home.  At night I decided to make this soup which was airing on TV at that time. Luckily I had all the ingredients required for this soup.

Delicious soup, which we all devour.
